Writeaway in France

French chateau with topiary

In this weeklong writing retreat in France, you'll revitalize your writing voice in a 15th century chateau, with a dedicated time to spend on the project of your choice. Your Writeaway in France includes writing consultations and daily writing workshops, a French cooking class, a visit to a farmers' market and tastings at local wineries, all meals (four-course dinners prepared by a French chef!), local wine and after-dinner drinks, and marvelous company. Hear about the Writeaway in France experience at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8czkDVp3_wc.

“There are so many writing workshops and retreats, but there’s only one Writeaways. And that’s because there’s only one John and Mimi. And only one Chateau du Pin. The combination of place and people compels participants to write and improve – and to enjoy each moment.”
— Candace, Victoria, British Columbia

Writeaways in France take place at 15th century Chateau du Pin, a 300-acre estate in the Loire Valley, 18 miles west of Angers, outside the village of Champtocé-sur-Loire.

NOTE: The 2024 Writeaway in France is currently full. Stay tuned for September 2025 dates.

For over a decade Writeaways have provided rigorous attention to craft for all genres and writing levels, individual consultations, and a lively community to help writers thrive and inspire them to create their best work.
